my short story and the update....
« on: March 01, 2014, 08:21:57 PM »
Ok...so for 2 weeks I've had headaches all day every day, mainly dull and achy across my entire forehead. Of course I'm thinking brain tumor. I'm very stressed out and think my eyes are a little off and do need to see an eye Dr.

anyway, I went to my gp the other day and she just gave me nose spray and said to check back with her in a month. Ok, so that wasn't enough for me. I went to the ER today demanding a ct scan. The Dr declined saying I didn't need one, he said he looked into my eyes and gave me a clean neuro test, gave me a med called furicet and sent me on my way.

is this enough??? Should I be ok with this??? And of course I'm watching some er medical show that a lady had a brain tumor!!! Uugghhj I just can't stand it.

Yes, you should trust your Drs.  Those headaches sound like sinus to me which is probably the reason they gave you the nose spray.

Stop watching medical shows!  :angry-smiley-034:  Give the new meds some time, if it doesn't help you can always go back for more tests. Hang in there.

I just PMed you btw. This actually sounds like a migraine disorder. Alot of GPs say "migraine only causes unilateral throbbing, nausea, and photophobia." Nowadays, alot of neurologists realize it can present in many more ways. I have had your symptoms before (neuro exam, annual eye exam, and brain mri all clean!), and I also struggle with frequent vertigo (my inner ears are fine--been tested), fuzzy headedness, and light sensitivity. Saw a migraine specialist finally and he said "Migraine/Anxiety associated dizziness", but he also said those pesky headaches i used to have days on end were migraine. Hope this helps!

Anxiety can cause all sorts of strange headaches, pressure feelings, etc to flare up that you wouldn't normally feel. With my anxiety came bad lightheadedness and the same type of dull headaches. My neurologist recommended an MRI w/dye, which came back clean except for vestibular migraines, which are extremely common. Until anxiety, I had never felt the effects of a vestibular migraine. His hypothesis was that anxiety was causing the effects to flare up, similar to how it can cause reflux.

I'm glad you can all relate, and thank you for your support, but why aren't these drs requesting a brain scan?? I'm making an appt with a neuro but can't get in for at least a couple of weeks!
